Room was clean but a few disappointing things. We were missing hand soap and had to use the shower body wash. When walking in the hall we found fuzzy growing mold in what looks like an old drinking fountain. We mentioned it to the staff and they were very apologetic and said it would be cleaned but it was still there the next day. Aside from the bedside lights there was only 1 room light over the bathroom sink which is located in the room (toilet and shower in a separate room). I couldn’t turn on the light in the toilet area without turning on the room light which was a problem in the middle of the night and my husband was sleeping. The lobby of the hotel is amazing and the location is great! Staff were so friendly and very helpful. Has a great open seating area in the lobby that was great for eating or playing games with friends!

Loved everything about this hotel. The view of Tiger stadium was the highlight. The room was small but very clean and the entire staff was helpful and friendly.

This is an amazing example of a historic building updated with love and care. GORGEOUS! The attention to detail is beautiful and the rooms are super comfy! Quality beds and linens (could have used another blanket though, the comforter was a little on the thin side). The only criticism is that it would have been nice to have a Keurig or coffee maker in the room. GREAT location!

Building itself was beautiful. Very friendly staff . Very clean!

Staff was polite and friendly and rooms were really comfy and clean.. the lobby was beautiful

Rooms has really bad smell Upon arrival. Toilet ran all night unable to sleep. Will not be staying here again

Great location. Staff was very friendly. Rooms are extremely clean

Incorrect room view at check in, let that go as we were just staying the one night. Incorrect charge charged on card number they were to use only for incidentals AFTER leaving, front desk very rude when calling to let know. Saturday checkout - today is Thursday & still waiting on a callback from the person they said would call Monday to fix.

Amazing stay. Rooms were clean and updated. The city corner view suite was well worth the price.

We were told that since we. Booked with a third party that our request for a king size bed could not be granted. We come into Detriot often and wanted to try a new hotel. You didn’t get our vote.

Great downtown location! Perfect for game or concert night out

We had a lovely stay. Staff was friendly and helpful. Our suit was spacious and clean.

Saw a show at Fox theater. This is blocks away. Similarly close to all major sports venues. They're all concentrated in one area, and this is right there! It's also adjacent to the monorail (people mover) and the up and back tram system. Don't pay for a breakfast included room. It's literally the only negative I have to say. I'm more mad at Orbitz than the hotel. Just go out to eat instead and save your money. This hotel doesnt really have a kitchen or food service, but you're near all the other spots so it doesn't effect things.

Nice hotel close to ballpark. Very courteous and conscientious staff.
